There have many occasions both here and elsewhere in which I have felt people with IBS tend to look down at my IBS symptoms and my efforts/struggle to get well with a sort of "well you're not trying, get what you deserve" and completely pooh-pooh and diminish the fact that I have busted my tail to get well.
I spend hours at stores reading ingredients, trying to figure out a diet, and it drives me nuts. When I have people tell me that until I stop grocery shopping and prepare all my meals for myself that A. I will not get well B. I lack the commitment to get well, and get what I deserve
I did admit I loose it, because I just think that's being snotty. I think to tell a person first try EFI, then try FODMAP, don't eat out, don;t drink alcohol, do this, do that, oh but because you don't prepare your meals 100% of the time you're not "committed", see why I would go off there?
